A year ago did you think they would have let Melo be a captain? Probably not.

I like it. The '03 draft class feels like "my" class due to it being the first great class since I started heavily following the NBA, and it's fun to watch these guys grow up. Here's hoping they stay involved with USA basketball for a long time.

As long as it's not Kobe, it's all good.

Kobe's a good guy, I'm sure he'll know how to follow such inspiring leadership. They'll set a very positive example for him.

I've always disliked Melo, but I believe in redemption and the ability to grow. So if this is the start of a more mature Melo who's learned from his mistakes, power to him.

Anybody else find it upsetting or atleast unnecessaryfor Lebron to keep tooting himself as "a leader" in every damn interview.
